Leadership and trust
In this episode of the Stepsero podcast, we discuss leadership and trust with Leo Wang.
Here are some useful pointers:
- It is important that your team members operate according to a shared set of values they adhere to and engage with.
- Letting your team know early on that you have their best interest at heart might help establish a baseline of trust. However, sharing your intentions is not as important as actually delivering on what you have promised.
- It is great to look at experienced leaders, while trying to define your own leadership style.
- When moving from an individual contributor role to a leadership position, it is important to help your team build bridges with other departments. Working on your communication style can help achieve better internal connections between your team and the rest of the company.
